Stansted Airport

A man arrested at Stansted Airport more than a fortnight ago has been remanded in custody, charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

A terror suspect who was arrested at Stansted Airport has appeared in court.

Dutch national Aweys Faqey, of north London was arrested on May 23rd.

It is alleged the 37-year-old obtained or applied for cash loans and bought tickets to fly to Turkey. The charge also says he attended Stansted Airport in possession of 700 dollars (£544) and 400 euro (£347).

Somalian-born Faqey appeared at the Old Bailey by video-link on Friday, speaking only to confirm his name.

Mr Justice Holroyde set a provisional trial date of November 13th at Kingston Crown Court and said Faqey will next appear at the same court on September 25th for a plea hearing.

Faqey, who has a wife and five children in the Netherlands, and a wife and child in Kenya, has lived in the UK since 2013.

He was remanded in custody.
